I went to this hotel with 3 friends, really great location in Kilkenny. Bedrooms were a very good size, spotless with very comfy beds. All the staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The bar had a very nice lunch menu and there was lots to choose from at breakfast and the food was lovely. The one downside... More

We just got back from what had been our favourite hotel in Ireland. Booked a one night deal with four course dinner, wine in our room and a late check out. Everything great on arrival, we got there at 2.30pm to a lovely welcome as always and good to see a brighter foyer following the recent refurb. Our room was... More

Myself and my wife stayed on a midweek deal which was 1 night b&b, 4-course meal, bottle of wine in room and late checkout for €69 pps. We had stayed at the hotel previously but hadn't eaten in the restaurant. On this occasion, we found the reception and bar staff very friendly and helpful. However, our restaurant experience was terrible.... More

Distinctly disappointed with this hotel. Room was clean, of a good size but dated and VERY cold. Infact bedroom heating was non existent - typical of the type of hotel we had to "put up with" in the past but certainly not in 2015 when there are far more better options, despite good location. Breakfast again highlighted issues: we left... More

I had a business meeting in this hotel last week. I contacted the hotel the evening before to check availability for a single room (bed and breakfast). The rate they offered was €95.00. I was told that this was the last room available, so what. I decided against staying and travelled to the hotel the next morning. After a three... More
